Pune District Administration Issues Safety Advisory for Monsoon Travelers

    Pune district administration issues advisory for travelers following a tragic incident at Bhushi Dam, emphasizing safety measures at popular tourist spots.

    The Pune district administration has released particular advice for travelers considering the monsoon season in reaction to recent fatal instances. This decision has been made in response to the unfortunate occurrence that occurred on Sunday near Bhushi Dam in Lonavala, which claimed the lives of a mom and four children. One day later, Collector Suhas Divase gave the go-ahead for an extensive survey to be carried out in order to find possible risks and put in place the appropriate safety precautions in major tourist destinations such as Maval, Mulshi, Khed, Junnar, Bhor, Velha, and Ambegaon in the Western Ghats.

    “Divase gave district officials instructions to visit picnic locations and make sure safety precautions are followed, such as rivers, lakes, dams, waterfalls, forts, and forest regions. He gave the order to erect warning signs to mark off forbidden zones. Tourists should not be allowed in areas that are prone to disasters or where safety precautions cannot be implemented, the speaker stated.

    Monsoon travelers are advised to take precautions.

    During the monsoon, a lot of people visit Bhushi, the Pavana dam areas, Lonavala, Sinhgad, Malshej, and Tamhini Ghat. “At water bodies that are frequented by tourists, agencies such as revenue, forest, railways, municipal corporations, and PWD should deploy lifeguards, rescue boats, divers, and life jackets.” Additionally, Divase requested that the district administration involve locals, NGOs, rescue organizations, and hikers,” the spokesman stated. After 6 p.m., visitors won’t be permitted at certain locations in forests, according to Divase.

    Tragic Lonavala Waterfall

    On Monday, the five bodies that had been washed away in a cascade close to Bhushi Dam in the Lonavala neighborhood of Pune, were discovered. The bodies of three of the five—a lady and her four children—were found many hours after they drowned on Sunday at around 12:30 p.m., while the girl’s body was discovered early on Monday morning, according to an official. A video of the tragedy showed nine or ten people clinging to one another as water rushed downhill all around them. As their grip relaxed, a mother, a boy, and then a girl were swept away.
